Now here's a sight you don't see filling the skies of L.A. very often, but there's no ignoring this eye-catching special installation billboard from Comedy Central's Workaholics series.

This bright orange installation is sure to get you excited, or Fully Torqued, for the returning comedy's third season and no you're not imagining it, but they are supposed to be boners sticking out of that billboard.

Some may find this billboard snapped at the top of La Cienega Boulevard in West Hollywood on May 22, 2012 a bit rude, but Daily Billboard is sure that for people who frequent L.A.'s Sunset Strip this doesn't offend their not-so-delicate sensibilities.

UPDATED: In what Daily Billboard is certain is a totally premeditated PR stunt, Workaholics risqué 'Fully Torqued' installation has been removed and replaced with this new 'removed due to explicit content' notice.

The 'Sorry, we tried to keep it up' pun is priceless and the flapping orange vinyl around the edges of the this billboard snapped on June 5, 2012, is a really nice touch.

Daily Billboard thinks that Comedy Central's Workaholics may just be in the running for a BAB Award with this clever, engaging creative.
